HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 c59W
Mr. Skinner

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what is the purchasing power of supplementary benefit now, taking it as £9.45 for a married couple and £5.80 for a person living alone, respectively, in November, 1969, and November, 1970.

Mr. Dean

The question does not arise since under the previous Administration supplementary benefits did not reach this level.
